About

As a psychiatrist, child/adolescent psychiatrist, and psychoanalyst, my viewpoint is that emotional disturbances have as their basis the way a person thinks and feels. In treatment situations, I attempt to elaborate and elucidate the way a person thinks in order to help that person see the connections between their thinking and behavior, and what troubles that person. The symptoms which a person presents with help to lead us in the direction of discovering what the underlying problem is. It is a truism that one needs to know a problem is present in order to be able to do something about it.
The most effective treatment in my experience is that which helps a person voice what and how they are thinking and feeling, combined with knowledge of that person’s history, growth and development. A talking relationship develops with the therapist, and it is in that context that problems can be solved.
While I have treated many different kinds of emotional disturbance in people of all ages, I do have a great deal of experience with adoption, in both children and adults. In addition, anxiety and depression are also specialties of mine, along with many kinds of situational disturbances.
